It’s hard to believe we are nearly halfway through the year! Although the legislative session is winding down, RAD’s work is not. We have been processing, planning, adapting, and responding to the ever-shifting political landscape to build the people powered movement we need. At this point, we’ve gotten pretty good at it.
Last month, we confronted legacies of injustice that our country – and the world – continue to reckon with. We joined grassroots organizations across the country to stand in solidarity with Palestinians and condemn Israel’s campaign of state violence. May also marked the anniversary of George Floyd’s murder. We honored his life by recommitting ourselves to the work of building a world where Black and Brown bodies are free from harm.
We keep pushing forward and are excited about our upcoming summer plans. Be sure to check out the trainings and events happening in June – and there’s still more to come!
In looking towards the work ahead, I want to invite you to Save the Date for RAD’s 6th Annual Membership Assembly on November 13th. From here, November may seem a distant future, but look how quickly June snuck up on us! This year’s Assembly promises to be full, joyful, informative, and quite simply, our best yet! Stay tuned for details….

Last month, we had the pleasure of talking with author Ian Haney Lopez on the Movement Politics show. We covered race-class narrative, pathways to unity, and why now is the time to build cross-racial solidarity in our communities. We’re taking the lessons in Professor Lopez’s Race-Class Academy and bringing them home in a four-part guided discussion series, the first of its kind, led by Kiah Morris and Asma Elhuni. There’s still time to join – reserve your spot!
We have been putting enormous pressure on electeds and working groups within the legislature to remove the divisive concepts language in the state budget, which has been condemned by the bi-partisan Legislative Youth Advisory Council. We are at a critical moment, and need everyone’s help to get this language taken out.
While the House and Senate meet to negotiate a budget compromise, we want them to hear clearly from the people of New Hampshire that both the original language of HB 544 and its amended version have no place in our budget, in our laws, or in our hearts. Join us on June 12th as we up the ante on the steps of the State House.
